Day in Dallas Texas 

img_2187

I’m in Dallas! It’s my first time in Texas which is exciting. I get to cross off another state. 23 down 27 to go. Getting to all 50 states is something on my bucket list, and am slowly making my way through them. If you’ve never been to Texas and are from the North East like me, let me too you, it is HOT!!! I think I filled up my water bottle 8 times yesterday! I knew it was going to be hot but it was still surprising. True we did choose to come

If you’ve never been to Texas and are from the North East like me, let me too you, it is HOT!!! I think I filled up my water bottle 8 times yesterday! I knew it was going to be hot but it was still surprising…

True we did choose to come mid July which probably isn’t a good call if you’re trying to avoid the heat. It’s still is loads of fun though. We did all the the JFK stuff yesterday and went to the DMA which was great! I got to see another VanGough I haven’t seen before!img_2203

We met Brad Oldham who is the artist who made the Skater Bird and Traveling Man statues in Dallas. He was really nice and talked with us for a while about how he makes his sculptures. We got a recommendation to go to Klyde Warren Park which is such a cool little park. It has a great play ground for kids and a performance area which apparently they do some concerts and stuff and lots. And there were food trucks all along one side of the park.

We got lunch at a restaurant called Lark on the Park which is right next to the park (as you can tell by the name haha). Really delicious!! They have big black boards that they have artists do drawings on which are all so good!

So far other than the heat I’m really likening Texas. Any recommendations of places to check out in the Dallas area send them my way!
